The University of Iowa College of Nursing plans to establish several geriatric educational services as the result of a $2.2 million gift commitment to the UI Foundation by UI alum Barbara Csomay, according to a UI press release.

"It was so important to my late husband, Dick, and me to find an effective way to promote health care for an aging population in rural Iowa," Csomay said in the release. "The UI College of Nursing is doing very meaningful work in this area, and I hope our gift will enhance its efforts to change people's lives."

The donation will be used to develop the Barbara and Richard Csomay Center for Gerontological Nursing Excellence and doctoral and practitioner scholarships.

Csomay is a 1956 graduate of the UI; she received a degree in music.
